TEXAS Senate Passes Anti-Sharia Bill


The Texas Senate last night passed and sent to Governor Greg Abbott a measure that would prevent any 'international/sharia law' from being used in Texas civil courts, a bill that Muslim detractors and some of their far left allies say is 'Islamophobic.'

WOAI: State Sen. Donna Campbell (R-New Braunfels) doesn't mention Islamic Koranic law, or 'Sharia Law' in her bill.  She simply says it guarantees that no laws for 'foreign courts' will be adopted by Texas civil court judges.

"It's just to provide some belt and suspenders to make sure that, with judicial discretion, we don't trump Texas law, American law, with a foreign law regarding family law," Campbell said.

Muslim groups say the bill is a 'solution looking for a problem,' and claim that the bill has its genesis in an anti-Muslim demonstration on the steps of the Texas Capitol in January in which the proposal was cheered.

State Sen. Kirk Watson (D-Austin) grilled Campbell on examples she has seen of foreign law being used in Texas courts.

"What foreign law are you attempting to prevent being used, and can you give examples of where it has created a problem in the state?" Watson asked.

"No foreign law," Campbell replied.  "This just provides a context for judicial discretion."
